Suit of the Week: MaxStudio

For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

It’s rare to see a brown suit with a sense of drama, but this heathered wool tweed one from MaxStudio delivers.  Love the bloused sleeves and hem, and the lack of a collar.  The jacket (MaxStudio Bubble Sleeve Jacket) is $298, and the skirt (MaxStudio Pencil Skirt) is $128.

Suit of the Week: Nanette Lepore

OK: I admit, I seem to really be loving Nanette Lepore suits right now. But this one is another winner from this season — I love the stark contrast between the tweed and the ribbon details. I feel like the placement of the ribbon is thoughtful, too — note that the bottom of the jacket doesn’t have ribon details so there’s no big horizontal line cutting you at an unflattering point, and I like the ribbon details at the sleeves (although proper fit will be very important here)! As always with Nanette Lepore stuff, I wish the skirt were about 5 inches longer — but shorter women, rejoice. The jacket (Nanette Lepore Tweed Margherita Jacket) is $398, and the skirt (Nanette Lepore Pinot Tweed Skirt) is $248.  (AND:  Wow, love the jacket in “beaujolais” as well, although I can’t seem to find a matching skirt…)

Suit of the Week: L.K. Bennett

For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

L.K. Bennett is a new brand to me — apparently it’s a British brand known primarily for shoes. Still, I like the look of this suit — the fit on the jacket (at least on the model) is nice, and the cutaway hem offsets the wide collar nicely. I particularly like the black buttons and high waist on the skirt — they’re interesting and classic, all at the same time. The jacket (L.K. Bennett Herringbone Tweed Jacket) is $545, and the skirt (L.K. Bennett High Waist Wool Tweed Pencil Skirt) is $275. A matching dress (L.K. Bennett Cap Sleeve Wool Sheath Dress) is $445 (although I’m not sure it can be worn under the jacket).

I’m loving these suiting separates from Reiss. The “origami paneling” on the jacket is interesting, as is the ’40s vibe. I also like the muted check pattern in the wool. The jacket (Axel FOLDED PEPLUM DETAIL TAILORED JACKETicon) is $360, and the skirt (Harper BUCKLE DETAIL TAILORED SKIRT GREY icon) is $180.

Love the look of this black and gray jacket and dress from Anne Klein. Love the thick black placket, which creates a nice vertical line, and I like the fact that it’s echoed on the sleeves and the pockets. It first caught my eye over at Bloomingdale’s, where they show it with the jacket open, but Anne Klein is offering 30% off on it. The jacket (Anne Klein Ottoman Jacket) was $450, but is $315 with the discount, and the dress (Anne Klein Ottoman Multi Media Dress) was $425, but comes to $297.5 with the discount.

I like this feminine suit from Rebecca Taylor. Love the ruffles on the blazer and the skirt, as well as the darts on the blazer and the little belt in the back. The wide lapels are a nice touch, also. The jacket (Rebecca Taylor Three-Button Essential Blazer) is $375, and the skirt (Rebecca Taylor Ruffle Bottom Essential Pencil Skirt) is $245.
